Monday Morning greetings from London W10, hands up how many of you have got a cold? From two degrees to nine degrees in three days is enough to clobber anybody, one minute it’s mildish, the next minute it’s artickly freezing. Having said that, between October to March I’m never warm, it’s just cold, colder and blooming ek its freezing.

Half way through January and I’m just about to embark on my first Business Development Event of the year. I’m taking nine lovely clients with me to Mauritius for a couple of days with Connections DMC looking after us. Of course, it’s a long way to go but it’s an overnight flight which works and I have been known to travel a long way for some sunshine and warmth in January. One of the great things about going to Mauritius is that whilst it is a twelve hour flight it is over night we land early in the morning the sun will be up and with only a four hour time difference we are ready to see the paradise Island of Mauritius. On the last day we have a full day in the destination then fly through the night landing at 6.30AM in London straight to the office.

Leyla and Hannah’s twitter and witter bit of the Monday morning e mail

Leyla normally leaves the house for school at 7.20AM – 7.30AM and Hannah leaves around 7.45AM, when I pack them off to school and give them a hug and kiss goodbye individually I say to them both; bye Leyla, bye Hannah wait for the green man before you cross the road (which I doubt they do) learn lots so you can be cleverer than your Dad. Their response always is Ok Daddy but we are clever than you already. I don’t argue because it’s true

Here’s a thing I discussed half term holidays and where should we go for a few days Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Budapest, Prague. Leyla as quick as a flash came back and said I can’t go anywhere, I have a week of exams immediately after half term. I’m still in shock, delighted and surprised so it looks like Hannah and I will be doing a few days out on our own in the UK. Any ideas on which day trips I should do? On my list is a visit to Stone Henge all other suggestions very welcome.
